The #EffinHotGravy Challenge @Kenny Rogers Roasters

Hot just got hotter at all Kenny Rogers Roasters Branch.

Did not know what I was getting into when I said yes to a second invite from Kenny Rogers Roasters. It was February 12. Together with other invited foodie friends, we  met up at  Kenny Rogers   Ayala Mall on the 30th  branch.

I found out soon enough after an #EffinHotGravy Challenge by Miss Millet.  Each of us chose 2 cards from the deck with nary a peep what number we got.

Each pair of foodie will open their two cards upon the instruction of the host emcee. My friend  EJ  aka @ilovetoeatph and @johnbunag and I were the second pair.  We more or less knew what was in store for us after the first pair did their challenge.

Our friend Kevin aka @eatsasmallworld  got a 5 gravy card  and one froyo card . This means he has to dunk 5  mouthfuls of Kenny Rogers Roasters Chipotle Fire Chicken  on the #effinhotgravy  and eat them one after the other.  One mouthful froyo to douse the heat comes after the 5 gravy challenge had been met.

Lucky for our friend Kevin , his threshold for hot and spicy food is up there.  So he was just chill. Any outward manifestation that he felt the heat was non-existent which calmed my fears somewhat.

I got just one gravy card and two froyo card and so did my partner EJ. Yay!  Suffice to  say that just a taste of that #effinhotgravy made me reach for the regular-sized froyo almost immediately.  In the words of my son, I am "panis"

And to think I thought  Kenny Rogers' Chipotle Fire Chicken was already freakin fiery, enter Kenny Rogers Effin Hot Gravy.

So was it really hot?

For me it was. I still remember how comforting that cup of froyo was after the heat from the combination of that Chipotle Fire Chicken and that #EffinHotGravy. And to think it was just  one mouthful . Well not even. I cheated. I just took a tiny bit of the chicken with a smidgen of that #effinhotgravy and I still felt the freakin heat. I know Im weak hahaha

For  the poker-face Kevin though?   I dont think he even felt it. He did not miss a beat.

So was it really hot? Well I guess you have to answer that  yourself when you  take the #EffinHotGravy Challenge and discover your limits. Find out   how hot you can take it.
